Broward County is in the top 10 counties with the highest pedestrian accident fatalities in the nation. In 2017, Broward County had 1,094 pedestrian accidents of which 62 resulted in death. With pedestrians sharing the roads with hundreds of thousands of cars each day, accidents are inevitable. Pedestrian accidents may also be the result of poor walking conditions on sidewalks, roads, or other walking areas.

Broward Pedestrian Accident Victims

Broward County has over 1.9 million residents and is located on the east coast of Florida. Situated between Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County, it is easily accessible from I-95, I-595, the Turnpike, US 1, and I-75, as well as from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport. Cities within Broward County include Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Dania Beach, and Pompano Beach. Over 16 million tourists visit Broward County each year. There are hundreds of retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and businesses, as well as several shopping malls, located throughout the county.

The sheer volume of residents and visitors results in more cars on the road. Higher traffic creates dangerous conditions for pedestrians crossing the road, walking along sidewalks, and waiting at intersections.

Broward Pedestrian Accident Causes

The most common pedestrian accidents occur from traffic incidents, such as:

  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Lack of familiarity with the roadways
  • Distracted drivers
  • Speeding
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Traffic congestion

Pedestrian accidents may also be the result of dangerous walking conditions. Broken sidewalks, potholes in parking lots and roads, and debris or loose overhangs in construction areas may contribute to accidents for pedestrians.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
